MiDOCS is MICA’s online doctoral thesis facilitation service in the communication discipline. It is designed to support and encourage MPhil and PhD students to complete their doctoral thesis. Its structure and focus keeps the doctoral students’ concerns in mind. It addresses doubts, questions and apprehensions that students begin to face the moment they enrol into a MPhil or PhD program: How to chose a topic for research, how to review relevant literature or where to find it, how to identify gaps and frame questions or hypotheses, what methodology (ies) to use, how to analyze data and write the dissertation. Click on the relevant category in the sidebar to write in your questions or respond to queries students have.
The MiDOCS service recognizes the role and importance of the research supervisor. But good dissertations often are products of peer and expert consultations, learning from others, and seeking help. We encourage you to share what you read here with your supervisor.
